TALKING TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT DEATH
Discussed by Glenn Lutjens
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org


Part 1 of 2

Disclaimer: Use caution when listening to this segment around young children. Issues discussed might be upsetting or hard for little ones to understand.

With the recent news of the passing of Barbara Bush, your kids may start asking about death, heaven, hell, and everything in between.

Focus on the Family counselor Glenn Lutjens has some parenting advice for you today on this very issue.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How do parents talk to their children and grandchildren about death?

Should adult children wait until their parent has passed to discuss the situation with their own children? Or should they approach the subject tenderly before the death has occurred?

Are open-ended questions the best choice?

How do we respond when our children ask this question: “How is grandma or grandpa”?

Dementia and Alzheimer’s do not have to be a scary situation for grandchildren to experience. Listen as Glenn Lutjens offers some advice for this, as well.

CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “Too Poor to Make a Difference” and is taken from Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.

In today’s devotion, Crown Ministries’ President Chuck Bentley challenges you to step out of your comfort zone and make a difference. You can, no matter what your financial situation is!

Chuck uses 2 Corinthians 8:2-4 and 10:12 as examples…

Further Scripture reading: Judges Chapters 6-8



TORAH DEVOTIONS
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 5

Mark Lanier was supposed to conclude his lessons on Torah Devotions last week, but SURPRISE! We get one more bonus week!

Be sure to check the Biblical Literacy link  for information about when his Torah Devotional book will be released for purchase. Better yet – come to Mark’s class to get your very own copy for free!

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Fifth Devotional: Deuteronomy 32:18 Where is your focus? Magicians practice and train for years to keep our focus away from their trick. They want to trick you! Are you looking at the shadows or the light? How you view the world will determine your focus. Are you plugged in to God? If not, you will fall for anything and become distracted.

Final Devotional: Deuteronomy 34:9 We’re at the end of the Torah! This verse reads: “Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.” Why on earth does Mark use this particular verse to end his Torah devotional book? Well, that’s not the end of Deuteronomy! Keep reading verses 10-12…

THE GREATEST TURNAROUND IN HISTORY
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 5

If you missed hearing Pastor David Fleming’s Easter sermon in person, well you’re in luck!  This week, you get the opportunity to hear “The Greatest Turnaround in History” from Luke 23 and 24.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why is it so hard for us to believe something from a simple story? Why do we want “proof”?

Remember: There is nothing impossible for God. Therefore, nothing is impossible for US with God.

Have you examined the evidence for yourself? What have you concluded about the resurrection?

If you or someone you know is struggling with doubt concerning Jesus and the resurrection, Pastor Fleming recommends Mark Lanier’s book, “Christianity on Trial”.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
